The hostel is really recommendable. I stayed there 4 nights in March 2012. Reception staff is great, they speak perfect english. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and the bed is confortable. You have your own locker in the room free of charge and the provide you with a padlock.
The situation is perfect. It's in a very quiet street 2 minutes walking from 2 different metro stations just on downtown.
I would recommend it to everyone is going to Budapest.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Staying at Ginkgo will open up hundreds of years of Hungarian history to you: it is housed in a historical art nouveau building that still bears bullet holes from the 1956 Revolution against Soviet occupation. The hostel is located in a flat that was privatized after the change of regimes. Historical marks surround you whether you are outside the building or in Gingko's unique courtyard. Ginkgo Hostel lies in the heart of downtown Budapest, near the Danube, on the Pest side of the city. In a few minutes you can reach historic sites and the most popular cafes, restaurants and pubs as well. ... more less
